Are the forums more active? During Jive I could post on like every thread on the 1st page of Off Topic and the next day only a few would be updated(MLP:FIM). Now it seems like people are posting at the same time as me threads are being updated and this is only day 2 of the new forums who knows what it will be like in a year!
It's nowhere near as active as it was back in 2010 though.
Though that activity is nowhere near as much as during the PlayStation Underground days as I keep hearing from vets. The moment you posted a thread, it would be on page 3 in under a minute. It would be hectic to keep up.
It's too soon to tell whether or not this change will result in a permanent increase in activity. Right now, it's shiny and new. Word of mouth and curiousity will cause an intial increase but will soon wear off. Then we shall see.
I think that maybe, just maybe this will do it. To be back on Lithium, with a black default skin and an easy to nagivate format, should solve the biggest reason most folks left during the Jive change.I certainly hope so, it sure would be swell to have an active forum again.
